Default Dark Eldar - PICS and log - Kabal of The Deadly Mist

Hello fellow night watchers. I shall post pictures of my Dark Eldar Kabal as I work on it and get it to completion, so there will be a showcase of both WIP and finished models (but truly when is any model really ever finished?). So to start off:
A bad pic of my original DE army early 2009:

Aww, memories.
Wip Warrior Raider:

Heamy Wip:

Razorwing WIP:

Hellion WIP:

Grotesque WIP:


I also just purchased the 250dl megabox. So I have a lot of stuff to work on for a long time. Sweet. Anyhow thanks for stickin in till the end of the post.
Cheers!

Woah, that Haemoculies (spelling?) is amazing! As well as all that free hand work on the vehicles!

I agree. Great painting on everything so far in this thread. I don't have a Dark Eldar army but I am sorely tempted to buy a Razorwing Jetfighter just because it's so nice. It's slightly annoying you can buy that for £25 whilst for me to get a Nightwing or Phoenix it'll cost me £67 from Forge World

I really like the skin tones on the Grotesque!

Regards,
Jake.

A lot of good stuff going on here. I agree the Haemonculis looks excellent, and I love the detail on the raider.

What have you done with the older models? I think a combined force of both types would look good. I have to say I can't say which version I prefer. Both are excellent, but I think the sail on the new one looks crap and the bat wing tail on the old one is also terrible.

Can you take a close up on the sail of than new raider, it looks like you clipped out the material and just left the rigging, which I find very interesting.

It does continue! I have continued work and now this warrior raider is finally at a tabletop standard, details later, now to bring their squad up to standard as well:

I did indeed carve the canvas out of the sails. Therefore I have the spine that makes the raider look whole and I keep it wysiwyg when not purchasing the sails upgrade. Because there are so many sails in the various kits I can easily mix and match, being able to run them all with sails if I wish or all with "undeployed" sails.
Cheers!

looking very good! not as dark as some of the armies I have seen which I like, are the DE still as Dark and Evil as they used to be or have they toned them down? (sorry I have never really looked into DE, when I started the codex was out of date and now I have 3 armies and no time or money for a third )
